Nokia 1 From 2018 Is Now Receiving The Update To Android 10 Go Edition

We've recently seen Android device makers become much better at issuing updates to new OS versions, especially for mid-range and lower-end models. Things still aren't perfect, but there are advancements that should be praised, especially from the likes of Samsung and Nokia. Speaking of the latter, it's just started to push out the update to Android 10 (Go Edition) to the Nokia 1 from 2018. The Nokia 1 launched with Android Oreo (Go Edition), the stripped-down version of the OS meant to run on incredibly affordable hardware. And now it's receiving the latest iteration of the OS, once again...

Our Samsung Galaxy A51 5g Video Review Is Out

We reviewed the Galaxy A51 earlier this year, but there's more to its 5G than a added support for NR networks. The written review of the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G is already complete and now Will is ready to guide you through the pros and cons on video. The phone comes with an Exynos 980 chipset, the midrange 5G platform by Samsung, and that comes with better performance than the Exynos 9611-powered LTE version of the Galaxy A51.

Oneplus Nord Listed On Romanian Retailer With Price And Specs

A retailer in Romania has already listed the OnePlus Nord and it put a RON 2,300 price tag on it. That’s €475 or INR 40,000, though we suspect the euro conversion is more accurate than the rupee one – OnePlus phones in India sell for less than they do in Europe (India and Europe will be the two launch markets for the Nord). This also works out to $535, which is higher than the promised price of “under $500”. But there’s no point in getting into details since the store clearly used a render for the phone image – just check out the centered selfie camera, the actual phone has a dual selfie...

Gmail Finally Works In Multitasking On Ipad

Apple introduced multitasking to its iPads a few years back, but Google’s Gmail didn't support it until now. Finally, the app will appear on the Dock where all multitasking-supporting apps are listed and can be used alongside Google Photos or Google Calendar. Multitasking on iPad is extremely useful since it comes with a native drag-and-drop feature for texts or images. Google said in a short message that the app should already work both for G Suite customers and end-users with personal accounts, but they must make sure they have the latest version.

Huawei Clamshell Foldable Revealed In Patent

Tiktok Leaving Hong Kong

Popular video-sharing app TikTok will pull out from the Hong Kong market within days, reports Reuters citing a company spokesperson. This decision to exit Hong Kong comes after the Chinese government passed its controversial security law in the semi-autonomous city in a bid to exert more control over its Internet, impose censorship, and force companies operating in the region to hand over user data. TikTok is owned by China-based ByteDance, but the company says its user data isn't stored in China - something they told the Indian government recently following a ban along with 58...

Apples Future Airpods 3 May Adopt Airpods Pros Sip Technology

The next-generation AirPods are expected to be released sometime in 2021 and according to Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned Apple analyst, the pair will adopt the more advanced SiP technology instead of the current SMT tech.

Facebook Messenger Shows Early Signs Of Crosschat Support With Whatsapp

We know that Facebook eventually plans to integrate WhatsApp into Facebook’s other apps. As reported by WABetaInfo, reverse engineer @Alex193a has discovered evidence of this in the latest version of Facebook Messenger. The list below shows the mentions of “whats_app” references. This could be a pre-cursor to the long process that it will be to integrate Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp users. The main difference between both messaging platforms is that WhatsApp stores chat information on-device in addition to end-to-end encryption (along with the ad-free experience). This is why WhatsApp...

While Samsung has been rumored to stick with its previous design for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 2, and improve upon the formula, Huawei may just give up on its unique path and actually join Samsung in the inward-folding realm for the next device. This has been referred to in rumors as Mate X2, but Huawei has recently filed for a new trademark in...

Apple Is Still Working On Touch ID For The iPhone

It has been several iPhone generations since Apple removed Touch ID on their iPhones and introduced Face ID. However, as potentially more secure Face ID is over Touch ID, it’s hard to deny how much more convenient Touch ID is, especially in this day and age where we’re wearing masks which makes authenticating with Face ID a bit more difficult.Will Apple ever bring back Touch ID?

Apple Stops Development On Apple Arcade Games That Aren’t Engaging Enough

Mobile games these days tend to adopt the free-to-play model where the game is free to download and play, but if players want to advance in the game or if they want certain features or boosts, they’ll have to pay for it.

New Report ‘Confirms’ iPhone 12 Won’t Ship With EarPods Or A Charger

According to recent rumors, it has been suggested that the iPhone 12 might not ship with EarPods.

TikTok Caught Accessing iOS Users’ Clipboards, Promises They Will Stop

Apps do many things in the background that we might not necessarily be aware of, which is why companies like Apple and Google have built in permissions into apps where developers will need to ask for permission in order to access certain features of our phones, like photos, cameras, microphone, and so on.A good example would be TikTok, in which it appears that users who recently installed the iOS 14 […]
